Drivers now have the option of using the EROAD Driver Portal to change duty status, when invited by their motor carrier, if they are away from the EROAD in-vehicle device. A driver must have an email address in order to use the EROAD Driver Portal. Registration is a two-step process.
The motor carrier's back-office staff sends an invitation to driver(s) to register on the EROAD Driver Portal.
The driver then receives an email notification to complete the registration process.
